Schools’ Program

Australia's biggest literary festival for students.

The 2019 MWF Schools’ Program will run from Monday 2 to Thursday 5 September. Program details will be announced and bookings open on Monday 20 May.

Keep up to date by subscribing to our Schools eNews.

Our Schools’ Program features four days of discussions, debates, workshops and performances to get kids from Grade 4 to Year 12 reading, writing and learning – perfect for a class excursion.

The Festival’s new home at State Library Victoria and surrounds is easily accessible by public transport (train to Melbourne Central Station, or tram up Swanston Street). Free, temporary bus parking is available in the 30-minute bus parking bay on La Trobe Street. Day parking for buses is available on Russell Street, either just north of La Trobe Street or just north of Bourke Street.
